Five-year-old falls from second-floor window

The police are investigating an accident in which a 5-year old fell from a second floor window while unattended. The child, who was alone in the flat at the time, escaped with relatively minor injuries, a broken leg and bruises. Police are questioning the parents in view of filling negligence charges. There have been several incidents in recent months of children falling from open windows. An eleven-year-old boy who miraculously survived a fall from a sixth floor window a fortnight ago remains in intensive care.
